Larger stamps

Welcome to my room . Thanks for calling in .
There have been some lovely comments  left for me  and I thank you for those . I find them really encouraging and to visit those that I can is awesome .
 I  have been catching up on some commenting today and inking  some stamps I bought a few weeks ago .
The two  images  I share tonight are from Kaszazz.

Now firstly , just a tip . I found that inking these large stamps is so much easier if you use a brayer. This  image is  'Card Art Man of the House' . Ink was Basic Brown  and Pumpkin Pie. Sentiment is from Stamp-It
Whole image was 3D onto DSP before adhering to card front .

Really loved this one ,  Card Art Domestic Goddess 1950's which was inked with Brocade Blue and layered onto some Old Olive card before adhering to DSP on card front .  Sentiment is from Inkadinkado  .  Gingham ribbon  and brads from my stash .
Would like to see if this card will suit a challenge of Anything goes  here
 Well that is another quick posting .
Tomorrow is Monday so will be an early DT member  post for Make it Monday .Just have to choose my pick of the week . Hope to see you then .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.


  1. Shirley, these do look fabulous, and not too large like we thought at the beginning, 2 wonderful cards,

  2. Both cards are absolutely beautiful and thanks for the tip on inking - great work tfs!!!

  3. Fabulous cards! I like that second one too with it stamped in the blue with the olive backing. Thanks for the tip about using a brayer on larger images - I have a couple of large images and it's always so hard to get them stamped right...I'll try the brayer next time.

  4. Hi Shirley-Anne! I'm lovin' these latest cards you've created....ages since I used a brayer...might have to dig in the drawer for mine....ha!
    You asked about the Retro Chef image....he's lovely, isn't he?
    I'm pretty sure I snagged him from Paulette at Create with TLC. She's recently changed the length of time that freebies are available, so if you have trouble snagging it, maybe I could email a copy to you? Just let me know. Hugs

  5. Two great cards, and both look stunning just inked.

  6. oh Shirley those stamps are fabulous .. i love the retro feel - i bet you will get a lot of use from them

  11. I really like these larger stamps. Thanks for shareing and thanks for joining us at Bugaboo this week.

  12. WOW both of these are beautiful! Fantastic images!! Thanks for playing along with us at Catch the Bug!

  13. Great cards with some really great images! Thanks for joining us in this weeks challenge at Catch The Bug!


  14. They are both so nice in their own ways... one typically masculine while the other is feminine. Love that sentiment on the second card and all the images are so very sweet... the aprons, the old fashioned telephone and all.
    Thank you, dear Shirley-Anne for your kind words. It keeps me going and creating more cards. My cards may not be the best that are around in this lovely world of blogging but it is my little way of paying back for so much.
    And blogging has just reinforced all that so well. Little did I know that when I started on this journey just a year ago...




Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it and enjoy reading each one .
hugs Shirley-Anne
